    Barbarians - Is the Germanic Language Accurate?



    "Barbarians" is a Netflix Show set in Germania in the early first century AD in the run up to the famous victory of the Germanic tribes under Arminius over three Roman legions under Publius Quinctilius Varus at the Battle of Teutoburg Forest. In this video I'll take a look at the language being spoken by the "barbarians" those Germanic tribes responsible for the legions' demise and how it's portrayed within the show. I'll be looking at the Proto-Germanic language and how linguists have attempted to reconstruct parts of it and how and why this process is different to the Classical Latin being used by the Roman characters in the series.
